I’m deeply saddened to let you know that Renee’s mom, Ellie Frishman, passed away yesterday in Maryland, surrounded by her children and their partners/spouses.

Many of us know Ellie, since she has celebrated Rosh Hashana with us for the last few years. She loved being with us and, of course, hearing Renee sing and read from the Torah.

The funeral is scheduled for Tuesday the 28th in Rockville, MD, and the family will receive condolences there on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Renee and Wayne are planning “shiva” back in Northbrook in February, so that we can all express our love, support and condolences.

Renee wants you to know that even though she is far away, she feels our support.

If you would like to make a donation in memory of Eleanor Frishman, you can direct it to:
